#15 R.J. Shelton
Each season has seen Shelton expand his role on the Spartans offensive and special teams. This year he enters with 11 career starts and has played in 40 games during his career. Often overshadowed by bigger names, Shelton should be expected to have the biggest year of his career.
Recorded his best season since arriving on campus with career highs in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. Was second on the team in receptions and earned honorable mention All-Big Ten from the coaches.
WHY HE MADE THE COUNTDOWN
With the loss of Aaron Burbridge it is time for Shelton to step to the front and deliver the best season of his career. While not flashy, Shelton has been a reliable performer since arriving on campus but Spartan Digest fully expects Shelton to not only be a big number guy, but also a leader to many young receivers.
